A new nation, conceived in liberty, and fiercely and unwaveringly dedicated to the proposition that all people are created equal. That’s what I’m after. Among the many questions such an objective summons are these: 1) would this new nation exist within geographic boundaries or, instead, only within philosophical boundaries; 2) what roles would individual citizens—whose citizenship is either by choice, chance, or circumstance—play in this new nation; 3) what form of governance would ensure the success of this new nation; 4) does this new nation already exist in another part of the world; and,, most importantly, 5) at what point will humanity awaken to the reality that only through acknowledging and embracing global citizenship is there hope for justice and equality? Tilting at windmills, knowing the exploding sun will engulf them in flames long before they bend to my will.
